We went up with this company yesterday at a festival in Missouri. Couldn't have asked for a better pilot than Kelly. She answered our millions questions and just had a fun-loving attitude. What a great person to take us up on our first ride. Thanks for everything!

Our family gave us this trip as a Christmas gift.. Kelli and Tom went out of their way to make sure to pick a day that the weather was perfect. The trip was everything I had hoped for, truly a bucket list check. Kelli is so wonderful explaining what will happen, what to do and how to get the greatest enjoyment from the experience. Tom gave us a beautiful tour of the valley pointing out all the points to look for and explaining the background. Getting to help set up the balloon and put it away gave us an extra understanding of what it takes to fly a balloon. Kelli and Tom have such a love for ballooning and the valley that they pass along to their riders. Thank you so much!

We have received our Ballooning Trip as a present from our family, to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. It took few delays due to weather conditions, but when it finally happened it was one of the greatest experiences, gift to remember. On a beautiful day and it could not been any better, we have helped the setup the balloon and then flu over the beautiful PGA West and the Polo Fields of the Coachella Valley. Landed safely in an open field and later celebrated with champagne and traditional balloonist prayer. Just a wonderful experience, thanks Kelli and Tom.

My wife planned our flight with Tom and Kelli as a retirement present, and it could not have been a better experience. They confirmed our flight, which was at sunrise. They met us promptly at our early-morning meeting point. They were also attentive to our comfort, suggesting we set in their van while we watched them prepare and inflate their beautiful balloon. Kelli and Tom both went to great lengths to explain the entire process, and Kelli took tons of great photos of us as the balloon was inflated, as well of several of the balloon in flight as she "chased" us across the desert. She even took photos of us inside the balloon! Even with six of us (besides Tom, the pilot) it was a comfortable ride and Tom pointed out landmarks as we sailed across the valley landscape. We landed in a field, slightly missing the designated target at the airport, but the crew got the balloon down and folded up in short order, and we were allowed to help in the process if we so desired. Afterward we had a little celebration, complete with a nice toast, while Tom gave us some background and history on hot air ballooning. I can't imagine a better experience. Tom, Kelli and their son are true professionals and obviously this is a family business that they take very seriously. I highly recommend you fly with them if you are in the Palm Springs area!

I cannot tell you how amazing our flight was! Kelli and Tom are the perfect host.We had weather problems and they constantly kept us informed on the status of our flight. This was really nice as this was over Christmas. We had an opportunity to help set up the balloon as well as pack it up when the ride was over. Tom was a wealth of information on hot air balloons and the area. The ride was amazing. Our after flight breakfast with croissants, fruit, and mimosas completed the experience. My husband and I cannot thank Kellie,Tom, and Kurt for an amazing experience. We crossed of an item on the bucket list. Thanks so much to you folks for a live time of memories. Catherine and Rem
